On Monday (December 19, 2022), Loganair announced their biggest-ever flying program to/from Newcastle airport for summer 2023. To support the expansion, the carrier has permanently based a second Embraer ERJ-145 regional jet ay the airport, increasing skilled employment opportunities in the North East city, while boosting the local economy. The schedule expansion includes double daily flights to Aberdeen, as well as new Newcastle to Oslo service, which will be operated via Aberdeen. The carrier will also increase Southampton service from two to up to three daily flights, and will once again offer service between Aberdeen and Southampton via Newcastle. Loganair will also operate twice weekly service to Newquay and Bergen, while Exeter service has been increased from three to five weekly flights. Tickets are now available for booking, with the new routes and additional frequencies available from March 2023.

In Monday’s announcement, Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer, Luke Lovegrove, said,

“This bumper schedule for 2023 underlines our commitment to Newcastle with our biggest ever programme for the city, offering customers more choice of destinations, frequency and capacity than ever before. It has been a very positive year for Loganair at Newcastle, and we are excited to see that success continue into 2023.”

Newcastle International Airport’s Director of Aviation Development, Leon McQuaid, added,

“This biggest ever capacity increase by Loganair is a great vote of confidence in both the Airport and the region and further strengthens our partnership. The investment will provide more choice for passengers flying from Newcastle, create more jobs at the airport and across the wider area, and increase opportunities for the attraction of inbound tourists to the North East. Loganair also provides connectivity to important business destinations, so this announcement will further boost the growth in business travel.”

Founded in 1962, Loganair is ‘Scotland’s Airline’ and the UK’s largest regional carrier. The airline serves destinations across Europe, Scandinavia and the British Isles with a fleet of Saab 340s, Twin Otters, Britten Norman Islanders, ATR 42-500s, ATR 72-600s, Embraer E135s and Embraer E145s. In 2023, Loganair will retire their remaining eight Saab 340s, replacing them with eight new next-generation ATR turboprop aircraft.
